Introduction: Spinal cord ischaemia (SCI) is a devastating complication of endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR), with a reported incidence of 0.2%. Interventions for SCI are largely derived from thoracic and thoracoabdominal aortic repairs. Report: We report a case of acute neurological injury complicating an EVAR that was altered by spinal drain insertion and removal. Discussion: This case highlights the need for appropriate consent of EVAR patients and the early utilisation of a spinal drain in the management of SCI. © 2014 European Society for Vascular Surgery.
